Sometimes forgiving can be hard.
Sometimes something simply seems unforgivable.
It might help to remember to forgive is not to condone.
To forgive doesn’t mean to say that was okay.
Think of it this way –
carrying all that anger and resentment around
is a burden on you.
Couldn’t you do something better with all that energy?
Maybe you can start by saying
maybe someday I can forgive.
Try saying that to yourself
once a day for a while.
Create a little space for possibility.
Then someday that someday may come
and you will feel a lot lighter.

Of course some things are easier said than done, sadly. MM
Understood, MM. This is in a perfect world…
Very true. I know I try and can on many levels. Then I struggle. Complete forgiveness can be difficult.
I agree. I’m a work in progress & sometimes it is easier than others. Other times I am still working on it.
Sometimes forgiveness needs baby steps..
Well said, everyone.
